Bridge funding (also termed interim support) may be obtained to support a previously-funded project that was not re-funded at the initial competitive renewal (i.e., A0), with a revised application allowed by the sponsor. Awards of up to $100,000 are co-supported by the VPR, SOM, and the PI’s Department/Center in a 2:1:1 ratio.
Before applying, review the VPR program guidelines and application form (http://www.virginia.edu/vpr/docs/Interim_Lab_Revised_Dec_2008.pdf) and the SOM implementation of the program (https://med.virginia.edu/office-for-research/wp-content/uploads/sites/279/2015/11/SOM-interim-support-guidelines.pdf).
Requests for bridge funding should be e-mailed to Steve Wasserman (email@example.com) as a PDF attachment, no later than March 5.
